THREATS to the future of a historic home have been put on hold after councillors agreed not to sell the land for a potential new health centre.

Members of Babergh District Council's strategy committee this afternoon voted not to enter into an “option agreement” with Apollo Capital Projects over the sale of Belle Vue House in Sudbury and land adjacent.

Instead the authority agreed to consider the longer-term future of the site amid growing fears that the house could be sold off and knocked down.
